“Who among us would think it acceptable that a state or nation would educate its young people by the criteria of race with white schools or black schools? Yet we [in N. Ireland] are prepared to operate a system which separates our children almost entirely on the basis of their religion.”

    We do that here don’t we? Catholic private school… Lutheran school… I have friends who send their kids to private religious based schools… by choice of course..

    I am thinking there could be some merit to teaching girls and boys seperately for math and maybe science or language arts… PE – we never had PE with boys… but my 5th grader does…

    Hey Dan, 51% sheep and goat milk: Where do you stand?

    Speaking of Halloumi? I’m surprised that producers here have gotten away with watering it down for this long, actually. Even if tariffs and such limit the export, there’s something to be said for culinary tradition.

    Tradition and conservative thinking are best in masters of money and food.

  4. Dan Says:

    Not always, Sinjin. For example there’s another traditional food here, called Ambelopoulia, that ought to be done away with.

    But halloumi is darn good, and goes with just about anything. 😉
